NRC Sets Staff Meeting on Cumulative Effects of Regulations

The May 8 meeting follows instructions to the staff to consider more completely the overall impacts of multiple rules, orders, etc. on licensees' ability to focus on the most important safety items.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission staff will hold a public meeting May 8 in Rockville, Md., to discuss how the agency can best account for the combined effect of multiple regulatory actions.

The commission recently directed the staff to continue efforts to ensure the agency can "consider more completely the overall impacts of multiple rules, orders, generic communications, advisories, and other regulatory actions on licensees and their ability to focus effectively on items of greatest safety import." The commission also directed the staff to include opinions from those interested in the topic, write up any recommendations, and report them to the commission by March 2015.

The meeting will be held at NRC's Two White Flint building at 11555 Rockville Pike from 1-5 p.m. Seating will be limited, but the meeting will include teleconference and webinar access. For details, contact Tara Inverso at 301-415-1024 or [email protected] by May 1.
